Odd Workflow / Tasks problem

  Asked By: Bob    Date: Aug 23    Category: MOSS    Views: 1882

I'm testing out MOSS 2007 on a 2003 Server box, running in full stand
alone mode and I'm having a strange issues:

First: I have a test Announcement list created, with Content Approval
turned on and an Approval workflow set to start whenever a new item is
added as well as when the item changes. After I create a new item it
sends out an alert correctly assigning the task, but here's the odd
thing: It sends out 2 alerts which come up in Outlook as a conflict item.

Second: When you click to approve the task that's been created, it
switches the status to 100% complete but then it creates a duplicate
task assigned by the "System Account" (which is apparently
SHAREPOINT\system). This then sends out another alert, which results
in a duplicate alert conflict again. Approving the new task starts
the duplication process again.

The duplicate/conflict alerts doesn't occur with another list I have
which is a calendar. Deletion also brings about the duplication of
task issue.

After further testing I've found that disabling "Start this workflow
when item changes" makes everything work fine. It seems that when
ever you complete the task with that turned on, the System account
insists on creating another task.

Does anyone have any idea where to start on this? I've poured over
every log file and every search I can think of but haven't found
anything useful.
